Abstract: This paper presents a security bound in the standard security model for the Magma cipher CTR encryption mode and the «CryptoPro Key Meshing» (CPKM) re-keying method that was previously used with the GOST 28147-89 cipher. We enumerate the main requirements that should be followed during the development of re-keying methods, then we propose a modified method and justify its advantages over CPKM. We also obtain certain results about the operational features of the Kuznyechik cipher CTR encryption mode with several re-keying methods.
